Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at FERC Docket RM15-11-000, which announces their intention to approve TPL-007-1 – the NERC standard governing the simulation of geomagnetic disturbances. The Commission does not propose any changes to the standard, but they do raise several concerns about the caution applied by the project team to limit TPL-007-1’s scope,

FERC’s proposal to accept TPL-007-1 is posted for a 60 day public review. Clients have until 7/27/15 to submit comments on the NOPR or to respond to the Commission’s concern of the standard’s impact on electric system reliability.
